Microsoft Edge Developer

Hi, are you a web developer or designer?

“No, I just want to share feedback on Microsoft Edge.”

Please use the Feedback Hub (requires Windows 10) to submit your feedback in the Microsoft Edge category. This site is for web developer and designer feedback only. Other feedback will be closed without action.

“Yes, I’m a web developer or designer with feedback for the Microsoft Edge platform.”

Great! This site is where the Microsoft Edge team collects feature requests from the web developer and designer community in the categories listed to the right. For bugs on existing features, please log an issue on the Issue Tracker.

Your feedback will help us with planning and to better understand how web developers and designers are using the platform. Top standards-based feature requests will also be copied over to status.microsoftedge.com, where you can track its development status.

For the most actionable feedback, please search and up vote for existing suggestions before submitting a new suggestion, and create a separate suggestion per idea. Note that off topic or inappropriate suggestions may be moderated. The Microsoft Edge team will use suggestions as an important input, but there are several additional factors that inform the final roadmap.

    • Disable the tile version of IE via Group Policy or some other Enterprise management tool.

      Certain websites require add-ons that do not run in the tile version of IE in Windows 8.1+, thus causing the user to manually switch to the desktop version of IE. For end-user simplicity, it would be nice to have the ability to disable the tile version of IE via Group Policy or some other Enterprise management tool.

      • Option to expand the DOM Explorer "Computed" tab by default

        I would like to have an option to have the items in this tab expanded by default, or maybe an "expand all" button at the top so I can quickly toggle all items. It gets tedious constantly expanding them.

                • Split IE into two versions: Normal and Developer mode

                  You should split IE into two different browsers/executables:
                  One default for normal user where devtools is not available(which may result in better performance?)
                  One for developers where the tools are available and where the browser GUI itself can include debugging tools shortcuts etc.

                          • Log XmlHttpRequests to the console

                            This feature would log every XHR based network request to the console.

                            Proposed design:
                            - Console message with the URL that is being requested
                            - Link to view the request in the network tool
                            - Link to the source location that triggered the XHR

                            • Developer Tools -> Detecting leaked memory by pointing out disconnected nodes

                              I find the Memory debugging tool good, what I am missing is to be able to see disconnected nodes easily and what is keeping them alive.

                              For example, these nodes may appear in the DOM Explorer colored differently in the bottom of the node tree - or in a separate section.

                              Then I would like to be able to click such a disconnected node and immediately see the js variable and code that keeps it alive, instead of drilling through stack traces and GC root views.

                                • Allow dom elements created on one window to be used in another (for popout windows)

                                  IE is the only browser that doesn't allow a element created on one window to be added to another. This is useful when creating popout windows in a web application and not all frameworks allow you to specify the document with which to create the element with.

                                  • Debugging capabilities using the remote debugging protocol

                                    Build upon the remote debugging protocol (https://developer.chrome.com/devtools/docs/debugger-protocol) to allow developers to use existing, familiar, developer tools.

                                    Then continue to openly build debugging innovations on the web platform based on the protocol, collaborating with other browser vendors to make it moving between browsers an easier experience.

                                    • Scrolling tables

                                      To those in the enterprise application world, tables are used extensively and can get both very tall and wide. Currently there is no easy way to make an HTML table scroll either way.

                                      Long ago in Firefox 3 you could add :overflow:scroll" to tbody and it would scroll, but they removed support for that because it was not standard. Even that only supported vertical scrolling.

                                      There are probably too many javascript toolkits to count that include their own version of a scrollable grid. Although those are very helpful, none which I know of support scrolling on tables without using "table-layout:fixed".…
